While most of our focus around behavioral systems in 2021 has been on gameplay-based behaviors like AFKing and inting. The game devs are working on a number of changes to systemically address this.
The latest patch 11.21 disabling /all chat in matchmade queues. /All chat is the only thing being disabled. Enemies will still be able to hear and see your emotes and champ mastery (unless muted), as well as CTRL+1/2/3/4 spam. End of Game chat will still be cross-team. Allies will still be able to coordinate with each other in team chat.
Regarding that last one, we’re aware that verbal abuse happens in team chat too, so disabling /all chat won’t get rid of abuse altogether. But team chat also plays an important team coordination function, so the potential value it brings is much higher, even if it can also host some negative experiences.
